LAS VEGAS — Disaster struck UFC 209 on Friday, as the highly-anticipated interim lightweight championship fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson was officially scratched from Saturday’s pay-per-view card.

Nurmagomedov (24-0) was transported to the hospital in the early hours Friday morning after falling ill while cutting weight. The undefeated Dagestani was treated and discharged, according to UFC officials, and the fight was called off due to “doctor’s recommendation.”

According to Khabib's dad: Khabib got either liver issues or kidney stone problem during the weight cut. So sad it happened. Hopefully the fight will be rescheduled soon

Damn that sucks. This PPV took a massive hit here.

As for our Fantasy Game. I'll move the lock time to 7pm ET but whatever fight is added to the Main Card will most likely be left off of the Casual League only. I think it would be too late to add to the Casual League with the whole 48hr limit. I'll check with the others.

Lando-tony rematch? What else do you do with Tony? Poor guy, I'd say he gets the lw interim belt by default.

I'm so done with Khabib. Dude's obviously got talent but he fights as often as Cruz.

Or we could just have a normal title fight with Conor for fucking once. I do think Tony deserves an immediate shot at Conor now though, bad luck for Khabib :(.

Sounds like Conor's next fight will probably be against Mayweather.

Fergy allegedly turned down a fight with Michael Johnson last minute. Fergy explained that he turned it down because it would not be for the title and it would be for less money. I didn't know the UFC did/could do that...shitty...because now I am wondering if other last minute fights were for less $$$. Good for Fergy declining it and making weight and getting paid.
